Downtown Los Angeles with Dodger Stadium

It’s time to sound off!

The Full Windup wants to hear from you.  We started this website in October of 2010, and have since built a nice little following of baseball players, coaches, umpires, and fans.  You know all about us.  Now, we want you to tell us a little about yourself and what you would like to see more of on the website.

Use the comments section below and tell us where you are from, how you are involved in the game of baseball (player, coach, parent, etc.), and what type of posts you enjoy reading here on the Full Windup.  We’ll do our best to bring you more of what you want.

Don’t be shy now.  Step up to the plate and drive this opportunity out of the park!

    I just found this site about a month ago, and really love the variety of different posts. I am a youth coach, and would love some information on 1st and 3rd plays. Basically, I’m wondering how my defense should react during those situations.

    • Coach J,

      Thanks for the feedback. You can definitely expect to see an article regarding first and third plays sometime in the near future. In fact, there may be two different articles on that particular situation: one from a defensive perspective and one from an offensive perspective.

  • I’m a player from NH – LHP and OF. I also like playing 1B but don’t get to play there much because there is usually somebody that can’t really play another position. I have played up for awhile. I play AAU baseball for a team out of MA. I love baseball and I work really hard at it. I would like to be a professional player but my first goal is to be able to play in college and then see what happens. I have had great coaches and my family is supportive. I like the traditions about baseball and all of my coaches are old-school and have taught me to respect the game.

    I think this site is great. I like all the different areas that are posted about. I really like the mental game posts because that’s hard to learn from coaches. Because a lot of time you just get things like “just relax” but that doesn’t really help. And how to mentally deal with being in a slump or having a bad outing. I know people say you have to just put the game behind you but that’s kind of hard. These are some ideas I would like to read about: how to deal with players that you don’t like and have a negative attitude, how to pick the right travel program, coming up with a pregame routine and because I’m in a small town in New England – what is the best way for a player to be seen by coaches & scouts? My goal is to play Div I baseball in the south or west. So, I don’t know if I need to go to lots of showcases or camps. I know that there are lots of things out there that are just about making money. But because of where I live I don’t believe when people say if you are good they will find you.

    • Owen,

      I appreciate the comment. You bring up a lot of good topics: the mental game, player/player relationships, preparation for games, travel baseball, and how to be recruited/scouted. It’s great to see a young ballplayer like yourself thinking about these kinds of things. Most kids don’t even scratch the surface of 1 or 2 of these topics until late into high school.

      Each of these topics will have some depth, but give us some time and we will work to touch on them throughout the next few weeks/months as we write more articles. Once again, we appreciate the comment and glad you are able to use this site as a learning tool for the game.

      Good luck this season!!!

    I too just found this site and enjoy the informative and well written articles. I am a Youth Umpire (13U) in the Chattanooga, Tennessee area and of course would like to read more articles on umpiring.  I believe a young boy would rather steal 2nd base than an automobile if given the chance.      

    Don’t settle for a “That’s just the way it is answer”. Question everything until you get an irrefutable or understandable answer.
